Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
When pregnant, of course there are no restrictions for mothers to keep taking care of their skin and looking beautiful. However, when using beauty products, you should be more careful and pay attention to the ingredients in beauty products used by pregnant women. Because the contents that enter the mother's body, whether consumed through eating, drinking, rubbing on the skin, can enter the fetal bloodstream and have a direct effect on the health, development and safety of the fetus, especially in the 1st trimester where the fetus is actively experiencing. development.
Some products that are harmful to pregnant women include retinoids (vitamin A), lead, mercury, benzoyl peroxide, hydroquinone, benzophenone, rhodamine, BHA with levels> 2%, and many others. Some of these ingredients can be bad for the fetus even at small levels, and some are bad when used at high levels or in the long term.
Because of the many ingredients in beauty products that pregnant women must watch out for, to really make sure you should consult further with a dermatologist to see directly the content of the facial wash soap product and adjust whether the content and levels are safe for pregnancy. The doctor will also adjust to the age of your pregnancy, as well as the condition of the pregnancy.
In principle, in the use of drugs, supplements, creams, and any product, make sure it is registered with the BPOM to ensure its safety when used by the body. And especially for pregnant women, as much as possible, consult a doctor before using the product, to avoid harm to the fetus and mother.
Some things that pregnant women can do to maintain safe skin health in pregnancy are:
Wash your face with lukewarm water and rub it gently with a warm towel to remove dead skin cells. You can also use safe food ingredients as natural scrubs such as rice or sugar.
Avoid consuming high fat foods. Fatty foods can trigger high sebum production on the skin and cause dull skin and acne
Avoid exposure to dust and sun heat on the face, for example by using a cloth mask when traveling outside
Keep skin moist by consuming lots of fruits and vegetables. You can also use natural moisturizers such as olive oil, and use natural face masks from fruits such as bananas and avocados.
As much as possible avoid using cosmetics during pregnancy
Drinking water about 2 liters per day
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and is useful :)
